If this DMC reboot does well, do you think capcom will scrap the old dmc story?

I personally don't have a problem with this reboot, but  i have a funny feeling capcom might do something dumb.

I guess Capcom is more desperate to make a ton of money out of the franchise than anything else (hence why there's a reboot in the first place), so if this sells well I bet they sure will continue on with this westernized version. But honestly, I hope they return back to the old series after this.

I agree after all its the original that made us fans in the first place.

I'm pretty sure the old DMC is dead by now. The only way we will ever see it again is if this fails incredibly hard, which I don't think that will be the case. A lot of people seem to be getting over their hate of the "new Dante".

the only way to see DMC 5 is if they give it to Platinum Games. Capcom lost all developers nobody left to make it.

yea I feel so to, I know in the begining I was like WTH. But Compared to the firs Trailer, to the newest trailer I grown to actually like the change of the series. But yea I agree I don't think they will bring back the original because they are promoting this version so much, even in the playstation all stars, this Dante is in there, and not the original.

Makes sense now that you bring it up.

im serious as hell seen a new trailer of playstation allstars and there he was. =( It would have been common sense putting in the original Dante since the first 3 dmc were on the ps2 but its whatever, I'm over it. I will just wait and see how well or bad this game will do.

You can clearly see they did that just to further advertise the reboot, which kinda sucks because he isn't the real Dante nor an "All star" like all the other characters they have there. He just doesn't fit in at all for me.

^^This. That's why Raiden instead of Solid Snake to advertise Metal Gear Rising. New Dante instead of Old because of DmC. I hope they put Leon because of RE5.

Me too, and i hope they put in Faith from Mirrors Edge, Aveline - Assassins Creed Liberation, Jennifer from Primal, Fat Princess, Nariko from heavenly sword, Rayne from BloodRayne and just Hopefully Lara Croft because I haven't seen female characters show up on the trailers.

The old DMC story is pretty much finished I would say, DMC4 felt unneccessary streched out and had so much backtracking and recycled bosses it got lame by the time you got to controll Dante. I hope this will do well and will bring the glory of DMC 1 and 3 back with witty onelines and kickass action but its true Capcom trying to cash in bigtimes lately by making sequels after sequels for example RE6, Lost Planet 3 and now a new DMC.

I sure as hell hope they don't! They left gigantic plot holes in the fourth one, they should have answered them before moving on to a whole new project. That was the only reason I was hostile towards this new direction of DMC. There was a DMC4 novel that came out later by the way, and it answered some questions regarding Nero's origins. But Capcom hasn't confirmed it as canon or non canon.

ignoring most posts since its just the typical bashing.

i think this might be a split franchise, like megaman and megaman x, just depends what capcom wants the developers to do.

btw, who cares about some all-stars thing? i know im not buying some dumb MUGEN-like compilation relying on mass name dropping to make a buck.

my problem with them is that they never fully complete, or tell the story in proper order there for i feel sometimes the story is left with many holes.

not only in the fourth one but in the 2nd one as well. I just didnt like the fact that they brought in a character like nero and not explain really where he came from. To tell you the truth I thought Nero was going to end up having his own spin off, or end up being a reboot...but i guess not. Also with a character like Lucia they didnt really develop her well enough, and they kind of just left her character in the dust, though in my opinion if it was any character that really needed to be remade, it would have to be Lucia.

yea i mean it s capcoms choice, there's a reason why they would trust ninja theory with dmc.

Game looks ridiculously EMO.  Old style=better.  New style=Devil May (sniff) "cry".  Pathetic.

If they ditch Nero and his storyline, I would be pissed.

#24 Posted by TheKrustaceox (24 posts) -
But isn't this supposed to be a story about Dante before DmC3? Hell i didn't know that they could scratch everything about Vergil, Mundus and stuff.
#25 Posted by GunEye (823 posts) -

Man.. I really don't know what to expect...

DMC games are coming too far away from each other..

That's why I am worrid good Nero is going to disappear from DMC history..

I actually have a good feeling about this game.. but what I want to know is:

a) should I get it to PS3, or should I wait for the PC version? I heard that PS3 version runs on 30 FPS cap (damn!) but if the PC version would also run at 30FPS... there is no real reason to get it.

b) will the game be more challenging than previous titles, would gameplay be better, would story be fun?
